Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Did a non-resident of Hallandale Beach cast illegal vote at HB P&Z meeting last month approving the Diplomat Country Club's LAC? Hmm-m-m...

I'll be posting my thoughts soon on my experiences
Monday night at the Hollywood Lakes Section
Association (HLSCA) public meeting on
Hollywood Beach regarding the Diplomat Country
Club's LAC
proposal, and this morning's meeting
on Andrews Avenue of the Broward County
Ethics Commission
, both of which I video-recorded,
hope to share with you here.

But more important than that right now, I wanted
to bring your attention to a matter that I only found
out about late this afternoon via an email from
Hallandale Beach City Commissioner Keith London.

It concerns his formal request to City Manager
Mike Good to follow state law and determine whether
or not a current member of the HB Planning & Zoning
Board, which voted last month FOR the Diplomat
proposal with certain provisos, is, in fact, an actual
HB resident.

Comm. London has what he says is proof to the
contrary, and if so, that will clearly have some legal
and public policy consequences.

My comments on this follow the info that he emailed
me, which I shared a short while ago with a couple
of dozen people I know in both Hollywood and HB
who are strongly opposed to the Diplomat project,
for reasons stated here previously, as well as to
various members of the South Florida press who
haven't fled the area for the holidays -YET.

FYI: I've deleted some blank space below in order
to make it more compact and easier to read.

Commissioner Request (CR) Proof that Planning and Zoning Board Member Sheryl Natelson lives in Hallandale Beach 12-09-09

Mike Good,

There are residents and neighbors that have informed me that Ms. Natelson sold her condominium unit on Golden Isles Drive and moved out of the City of Hallandale Beach. See attached BCPA web page showing no listing of her owning property in Hallandale Beach

It is a requirement of our Charter to be a resident to serve on our Planning and Zoning Board.

The residents are requesting an updated copy of her Florida Driver License reflecting her current address. As you know, Florida Statue 322.19 requires you to update your address within 10 days of changing address (see attachment below).

Please provide me with updated proof of her eligibility to serve on the City of Hallandale Beach Planning Board.

To refresh your memory, Sheryl Natelson is the
same person who... well, I already wrote about it
in an email to some people back on Oct. 28th.

Below, in blue, is what I wrote six weeks ago about
her, the daughter of one of Mayor Joy Cooper's
best friends.
The mayor lives a block away from Natelson's parents.
I will be at what promises to be the contentious
P&Z meeting this afternoon re the city's controversial
and unpopular
RAC proposal at 1:30 p.m., and
hope that you can come by for a spell as well.

The last time I was at a
P&Z meeting, in late August,
held over at the HB Cultural Center, the Board Chair,
Arnold Cooper, and one of the members,
Sheryl Natelson -daughter of Mayor
Cooper's very close friends
- threatened to call the
HB Police and
have me evicted from the room and
charged with
something after I spoke during public
and then returned to my seat,
against the side wall,
and started taking photos
of the public proceedings
from a good 80-feet away.
(12/9/09 Note: I wasn't video-recording the HB
P&Z meetings then as I do now.)

This being Hallandale Beach, of course, these two
individuals had no compunctions about threatening
me, even though there was a COMCAST TV camera
only about five feet away from them broadcasting
everything they said and did.

This was made all the more absurd and pointless

by the fact that there were only two other people
in the entire HUGE room at the time besides myself,
weren't Board members or city employees.

Trust me, if Arnold Cooper and Sheryl Natelson
even hint at such illegal and anti-democratic efforts
again, I will be videotaping it and then calling the

and the State Attorney's Office from the
hallway, and immediately begin filing formal ethics
charges against the city, collectively, and Cooper
and Natelson individually.

I appreciate that many of you who already know
about that incident have told me that I should've
already filed the ethics charges and had the city
investigated, since we know that they are not
unshine Laws.

For the record, here's just a few of the HB city
employees or Board members present who said/did
NOTHING at the time to counter their illegally
threatening a citizen for taking photos at a public
then-Assistant City Attorney Melissa Anderson,
Planning Dept. director Christy Dominguez,
Development Services director Richard Cannone,
then-Acting City Clerk Shari Canada, former
mayor Eudyce Steinberg...

Yes, they are very First Amendment-friendly
at Hallandale Beach City Hall, and that starts
at the top with Joy Cooper!

That's our home sweet home.

Trust me, given Natelson's anti-democratic track record,
you have absolutely no reason to give her the benefit of the
doubt on this.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
